Borough archivist Felix Lancashire popped into Orleans Park School to pick up important material for Richmond’s archives.

The archives and local studies library has requested historical records from all schools in the borough.

Among the treasure discovered at Orleans Park were a school admissions book from September 1961 to September 1977, a log book from September 1978 to December 1982, and school diaries from the 1980s.

Mr Lancashire visited Orleans Park on Tuesday, February 11, to collect these items for the project.
